Analysing Climate Change: Projections for Singapore and the Southeast Asia Region


In 2015, MSS’ Centre for Climate Research Singapore (CCRS) completed the first phase of the Second National Climate Change Study, which provided climate projections up to 2100 for key variables such as temperature, rainfall, wind, and sea level rise. The Study’s findings form the basis for Singapore’s long-term climate change adaptation plans.


The Study’s methodology and findings were presented at the Special ASEAN Ministerial Meeting on Climate Action (SAMCA) held in Singapore on 10 July 2018. The presentation highlighted the complexities and challenges in generating climate scenarios and applying them to adaptation planning. It also touched on how better regional cooperation in data and knowledge exchange can overcome some of the challenges.
